§ Captain Poole
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport if he is aware of the great hardship suffered by the residents of Swinfen, Wee-ford and Littlehay owing to the absence of any omnibus service; and will he now endeavour at least to restore a weekly omnibus between these villages and Lichfield.
§ Mr. Noel-Baker
I regret that the position is still the same as when I wrote to my hon. and gallant Friend on 12th January. Lack of crews precludes the restoration of this service at present. I understand that there are three return journeys on Saturdays between Weeford and Tam-worth and that Littlehay is only a little more than half a mile from the Lichfield-Birmingham route on which there is a regular service.
